The family-owned Portuguese institution has made it seven full years around the sun — and to celebrate, Tuga Pastries is throwing a huge block party at both of its pastry-slinging outposts. On Sunday, May 26, you can hit up either the Clovelly or Alexandria locale for top-quality Portuguese pastries paired with hot-off-the-grill barbecue.

Not only will the joint's coveted sweet treats, like its famous pastel de natas, coconut brioche and almond tart, be on offer, but you'll also be able to sink your teeth into limited-edition specials made specially for its birthday celebrations.

As part of its Portuguese showcase, the crowd-pleasing venues will be dishing up traditional patas de veado (a sponge and custard dish shaped like a deer hoof), decadent russos (vanilla custard sandwiched between two thin layers of puff pastry),  malasadas (a Portuguese take on donut balls and loukoumades), and duchesses (an eclair with a sweet egg custard and whipped cream filling).

This one-day celebration is perfect for the family — there'll be a petting zoo, face-painting station for the kids (or grown-ups embracing their inner child) and DJs spinning live tunes. You're also welcome to bring your beloved pooch along to join the party.
